Overview – Intern. Management for Non-Business Graduates

Master Inter. Management for Non-Business Graduates

Programme introduction

If you have a good academic background, but come from a non-business academic or professional background, this programme is for you.

To help you rise to a role in upper management, this programme gives you a comprehensive business education. It combines a one-semester preparatory course with our four semester Master programme in International Management. You can specialise in marketing, accounting and finance, human resource, hospitality or aviation management.  

To qualify, you need a Bachelor degree in an area other than business. After successfully finishing the preparatory semester and four semesters of our Master programme, you will graduate with a Master of Arts degree in International Management. This degree qualifies you for a role in higher management or for a doctorate degree.
